02 - 07 - 2013 Gov. Corbett says budget includes increased CHIP enrollment
Governor Tom Corbett continued his budget announcements yesterday by visiting the Osterhout Free Public Library to discuss his plan to increase outreach and enrollment for the state Children's Health Insurance Program or CHIP. About $1 million of the proposal will be used to focus on partnerships and enrollment outreach towards the long-term goal of insuring all eligible children in Pennsylvania. The additional funding will be used for enrollment services and to provide health care coverage to the additional 9,300 new enrollees expected through the expanded outreach.
